Neck and Back Exercises

Posted on Wednesday, February 15th, 2012 by anna

It looks like you have been neglecting your posture for too long; your back muscles ache and groan in protest every time you stretch to reach up to grab something and your neck muscles ache whenever you have to turn your head. Not many people know that a poor posture is often the root cause of many instances of neck and back pain. Most of us don’t flaunt perfect posture and many of us are even far from laying claim to good posture. Pains and aches are quite common and the most effective way of combating these is to perform exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles.

The exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles, when performed under supervision, help to correct posture. These not only improve your bearing but also keep posture-related aches and pains at bay.

The exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles work in two more ways. Firstly, exercising triggers the body’s self-healing mechanism so that you have greater chances of getting over the pain without the aid of medication. Secondly, exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles also improve the flexibility in these sensitive regions so pains and aches do not recur.

Exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles help to loosen the muscles in this area. Lack of exercise or any injury may cause the muscles in the neck and back area to become stiff and obstruct blood flow. The muscles become weak and vulnerable to injuries. It is important to keep the muscles in this area active and strong so they can withstand injuries.

However, it is imperative that you perform the exercises to strengthen neck and back muscles under guidance—the chances of a sprain or an injury resulting from an incorrectly carried out exercise regime are high and can prove to be grave. Don’t wait for that nagging pain in the neck or the stiffness in the back to worsen.
